We actively seek applicants from diverse backgrounds, experiences, ages and identities to provide a wide range of perspectives, ideas, views and insights into the strategy, policies, culture and ambitions of Malala Fund.
We take seriously our responsibility to safeguard everyone with whom we come into contact — both directly as we mobilise a constituency of support for girls’ education and indirectly through the programmes we fund and our social media channels. We take a zero tolerance approach to abuse and exploitation by any of our staff, representatives or partners. We also take seriously our responsibility to protect those who work with Malala Fund or on our behalf, and ensure that they can work in an environment that is free from harm. To this end, Malala Fund reserves the right to conduct background checks on prospective and current employees.
